Track Club Launches Fall Marathon Training Program

Chattanooga, TN - On Monday July 20, 2009 the Chattanooga Track Club (CTC) will launch it’s annual marathon and half marathon training program. The 16-week program is designed to prepare runners, from beginners to the experienced, for the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon and Half Marathon scheduled for November 14, 2009. The program can also be altered to fit other fall marathons and half marathons.

Along with providing runners with a weekly schedule designed to build runners’ strength and endurance, the training program will offer participants two weekly group runs. The group runs include a Wednesday night mid-week tempo run and a Saturday morning long run.

The Wednesday night run will meet each week at 6:15 pm at the Downtown Sports Barn (301 Market St.). The location of the Saturday morning long runs will vary each week, with several runs on portions of the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon course. The group runs will include detailed course maps, water and sports drinks every few miles, and post run snacks and drinks.

Those interested in joining the program should attend the brief introduction session on Monday July 20, 2008 at 6:00 pm at Outdoor Chattanooga (200 River St – Coolidge Park). The training program’s first group run will take place Wednesday July 29th at 6:15 pm at the Downtown Sports Barn (301 Market St).

The training program is offered free to members of the Chattanooga Track Club, registrants of the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon or Half Marathon, and employees of CTC corporate sponsors. A $24 fee applies to all others. The fee includes membership to the Chattanooga Track Club.
